An Indonesian in his 20s was reportedly stabbed to death with a parang tied to a wooden pole pushed through an open window which was pried open.
The Star Online reports that the incident happened on November 28 at around 2.30am when the victim was asleep in his home in Kampung Melayu Subang near Sungai Buloh.
Sungai Buloh OCPD Supt Abdul Aziz Awang Darus told the news portal that the victim’s wife was awakened by her husband’s screams and she saw a parang stabbed into his stomach.
“The parang was tied to a long pole which was pushed in through an open window. The suspects fled when the wife reached for the pole.
“The wife took him to Sungai Buloh Hospital for treatment before she lodged a report,” Supt Abdul Aziz was quoted as saying.
The victim reportedly succumbed to his injuries two days later.
According to Supt Abdul Aziz, the police have arrested four suspects, aged between 28 and 56, in separate raids over the next couple of days.
Initial investigations revealed that the motive for the murder was jealously as the prime suspect, also an Indonesian, wanted the victim dead after he allegedly tried to seduce his wife.
The prime suspect allegedly paid RM1,200 to another Indonesian to kill the victim, while two locals were hired as transporter and spotter.
The 28-year-old spotter, revealed Supt Abdul Aziz, is a former policeman.
The police have also seized the pole that was used in the murder, a Proton Gen 2 and several handphones.
